I do not smoke when I play with linoleum!
But I just see this is project no 39.000 on LJ, so I could have taken a celebration pipe!

I could have used one of these in high school art class when I cut the hell out of my fingers trying to cut linoleoum with those chisels!

Mads I thought about you when I used my bench hook on the grease pot project. I had made it when I was about 10 for a 4H project and won a blue ribbon at the fair way back in 1958 -1960. You guys have me thinking about working with hand tools and I used it on purpose. It felt very good to used something I had made 50 years or so ago. I figured you would know what a bench hook was for and might show it as a project. You beat me to even mentioning it to you.

I’ve never carved linoleum but I do know what that is all about

You always seem to find a way of bringing back something and making it new again.

Thank you all,
The truth is I made one for my friend Lulu a month ago, since she wanted to get started on linoleum, and found it hard to hold it, so I solved it by making a bench hook, and also it was more safe. I made one for me also, but did not get any further, then last week she asked for a tools stand, and I made this as a test, to see if this is what she wanted. She is retired also, and I like to help where I can. And now I’ll see if I can get back to playing a little my self with this stuff also, but since my arms are not too fine, it might be too tough work for them.
After seeing PaBulls, the other day, I decided to make me a version for my workshop also, but I’ll make one to fit my Festool MFT table, so it will be different, I’ll post it when done.

Mads, all of the work that you do is so creative. This is a great little wok station and I will try better to get my shop more organized because you inspire me to do it.
